The Head of the Strategic Studies Center of the Expediency Discernment Council and Consultant to the Supreme Leader in International Affairs pointing to Iran’s nuclear deal said "If we do not deal with these 6 countries individually as needed, if we do not hold one to one negotiations, we will not have adopted a proper approach.”
Providing comments on the 11th administration’s approach to the nuclear talks, Aliakbar Velayati said "It is important that we answer diplomacy with diplomacy. If the opposite side follows reason and acts sophisticatedly, we must do the same. The fact that we would not dismiss negotiations in the past was a good thing. The previous teams would also negotiate and things were based on the premise that we would always hold talks. That is necessary but not enough. The negotiations must have some quality.”
"If we do not hold talks with each one of these six countries as needed, if we do not hold one to one negotiations, we will have not adopted a good approach. We must hold separate talks with each country. Each one of these countries has its own characteristics and interests. If we do something to make these six countries reach consensus on opposition to us we will have made a mistake, because these countries have much disagreement in international affairs. What have we done to drive six diverging countries which agree on few instances into joint opposition with Iran?” Velayati enquired.
